Thavenius (2009:23-122) and Dahl (1999:49-82) explains that literary education in school has gone from, in the 1800s, barely existed on receiving the fairly central location it has today. Fredriksson (2010:2-3) points out that there are several threats to the ancient writers and writings in danger of being forgotten. The purpose with this essay was to examine how to work with literary history in school, and whether and how to work with regional literature history. To fulfill the purpose of this paper three high school teacher in Swedish were interviewed.
The survey shows that respondents working in various ways with the history of literature, either in the eras, themes or projects. The perception of what literature and the authors to be affected varies between respondents, particularly the perception of the work about authors from Värmland. Cecilia works primarily with those in the subject Swedish as a Second Language, Agneta teach about them only if it fits the theme and not from the fact that they are from Värmland. Bodil teach about many different authors from Värmland due she believes it is important that students know their heritage. There is thus a danger that many of our authors from Värmland will be forgotten. The main reasons for this are time, opinions on literature teaching and opportunities for field trips.
